All attributes in God are intrinsically a subsistent glorification for Him. He is glorified by being those attributes for Himself in an act of being which is totally fulfilled in His consubstantial joy of Divinity. Yet, God is not mercy for Himself. Mercy is the great attribute of compassionate love that is given to us through the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world.

The whole life of Christians is nourished by God´s mercy. God is infinitely good, Christ is the infinite mercy incarnate, Mary is the mother of the divine mercies and the Holy Church is a mystery of divine mercy.

 

“Mercy is the most consoling
and full of hope divine attribute”

 

On the 13th of May of 2001, feast of the Virgin of Fatima, sheltered in the womb of Her divine Motherhood, under the penetrating light of the Eternal Wisdom; in a luminous, acute and flickering gust, during the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, immersed in the depth of the consubstantial and transcendent mystery of God; little by little and gradually, my spirit was feeling plunged into that same Wisdom, in a transcendent and most profound intuition about the infinite attributes and perfections that God is Himself in Himself, by Himself and for Himself, in His immutable act of Trinitarian life, in eternal subsistence, been and possessed in essential joy of most glorious and most blissful enjoyment of Eternity.

[…] Understanding, under the burning fires of the suns of the divine mind and the lulling of the penetratingly most savoury and sapiential breeze of the Holy Spirit, that all the attributes that God is Himself in essential joy of most glorious and most blissful enjoyment by virtue of His infinite subsistence, the reason for being of His very Divinity, He is Himself such, in Himself, by Himself, and for Himself those attributes.

Being mercy like a new attribute, different and distant, that God had brought forth from the sublime loftiness of the might of His infinite power in merciful outpouring of love and tenderness over the misery of the fallen and as though destroyed humanity; even though it be not an attribute intrinsically in essential joy for God, for it is a relation of His goodness to the human creature, as a consequence of the destruction by man of the eternal designs on himself and the inanimate creation, and at the situation of misery in which he found himself when rebelling against his Creator. […]

And, as I was going more deeply… going more deeply… in the mystery of the reason for being and of the plethoric perfection of the Divinity, I was understanding, in a very acute manner, that all His infinite attributes in their infinite ranges that break out as though in infinite touchings of melodic harmonies of infinite attributes through infinite infinitudes of attributes and perfections, God was being what He was in the subsistent instant of being Himself so, having Himself so always been, in His immutable act of Trinitarian life, in Himself, by Himself and for Himself, in essential and consubstantial joy of divine intercommunication;

and that mercy, that is been by God in Himself and by Himself, but that He cannot be it for Himself in joy of essential enjoyment of Eternity on account of the intrinsic perfection of His divine nature; since it is and indicates a relation to the misery of the human creature, that is not possible in God; it was the outpouring of the excellent might of God’s excellence, who, bowing in redeeming compassion, looks to the fallen humanity, destroyed and sinful because of its rebellion against the Creator, for the restoration of that same humanity, reconciling it with Him and placing it again in His eternal designs. […]

Understanding in a deep and enjoyable way, penetrated by the knowledge of God’s subsistent excellence that overwhelmed my spirit, that, as the attributes in God are been by Him in Himself, by Himself and for Himself, in infinite subsistence of Divinity and in essential glory of Himself;

the attribute of God’s love, full of goodness, pouring itself out in compassion of mercy on the weakness of our misery, even though it is been in God and by God, it is not with relation to God Himself in essential joy, but in compassionate leaning of His love overflowing with tenderness towards the weakness, loaded of misery, of fallen humanity, as a consequence of the sin of our first Parents;
and therefore, it is different from the others, with respect to the infinite glorification that gives Him the infinitude of His infinite attributes,been intrinsically in Himself, by Himself and for Himself.

Since, if man had not sinned, God would not have brought forth from His divine power the possibility of becoming man in order to be able to redeem us; coming, in the manifestation of the splendour of glory, as though in a delirium of merciful love towards our weakness, to die in bloody crucifixion, pouring Himself out in love and mercy, full of compassion and tenderness, over humanity.

Therefore, although mercy be not an intrinsically essential attribute in God, in consubstantial and infinite glorification of Himself; it is the one that makes possible the transcendent mystery, overflowing, majestic and splendorous of the Incarnation.

So that, for the mind of man who does not know well the profound profundity of the divine and unfathomable secret of the Infinite Being, mercy is the greatest attribute of the divine attributes; and the most consoling, most tender and full of hope, because, what would have become of us if Christ, the Incarnate Mercy, had not redeemed us?

Fragment of the video of Mother Trinidad “Sublimation of the cross”, recorded on January 14th, 1989 (press PLAY):

God, Who is Himself of Himself, creates such perfect beings that they are capable of possessing Him because He gave them a being in His image. And this creature, upon seeing itself so perfect and upon being, says when it sins: “I do not want to submit my ‘I’ to anything.” With that, the creature loses the reason for its “I” dependent on the divine “I” and, eternally remains without a reason for being, not being able to live of the Infinite One, the only one capable of making it happy, and everything turns for it into eternal torture. (15-9-66)
By virtue of the perfection of His nature, God is and acts in infinite perfection, in such a way that if He were to do anything imperfect, He would cease to be God. How rashly does the twisted mind of man say before the workings or the divine plans that, due to his limited being, he understands not: it would have been better the other way around! And, saying even: God has done things wrong. (8-6-70)
God’s infinite Holiness is so excellent, that, when it was offended, there was no possibility in the creature to make reparation to it with dignity; and God Himself, by becoming incarnate, becomes Himself an infinite Response of reparation, that redresses and adores His holiness. (16-10-74)
